Ships are still a vital means of transport today and most ships are dependent on IT to run its course from home to destination. IT controls communication, navigation, etc in the ships.
When an IT device goes down in a ship, the current process is that ships have to inform the IT support team of this and the support team probably have to wait till the ship docks to investigate the down device.
After investigation, given the tight schedule of the ship, the IT team probable is only able to fix or replace down IT devices at the next port of call.
This means a down IT device in the network infrastructure could take a few weeks before full repair is possible.
Ships deploy dynamic IPs as static IPs for satellite communications are currently still costly. Even if the ships have had static IP, VPN connection via satellite wouldn’t justify the cost to monitor each ship via VPN.
